Open-Faced Crockpot Pesto Chicken Sandwiches



Crockpot meals are the best, and the best crockpot meals are extra simple. Such is the case with these Open-Faced Crockpot Pesto Chicken Sandwiches.

INGREDIENTS
2-3 chicken breasts
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper
1/4 cup pesto
English muffins
shredded mozzarella cheese
sliced tomatoes

PREPARATION

  1. Prepare chicken by placing the breasts in a crockpot with oregano, onion powder, garlic salt, and salt and pepper. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  2. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the crockpot and shred. 
  3. In a medium bowl, combine chicken with pesto.
  4. Prepare the sandwiches by cutting open English muffins. Place the chicken/pesto mixture on the English muffin, and top with sliced tomato and shredded mozzarella cheese.
  5. Place all sandwiches on a cookie sheet and broil for about 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

This is about as easy as it comes. The sandwiches are filling and enjoyable year round. They also go great if you have a favorite side dish or salad.

That sounds like one heck of a sandwich! I am sure my husband would love me forever if I made him one of those.

I love how this recipe sounds! I'm getting ready to have company for 10 days starting this evening, so I may just have to add these to the menu!

This is a great idea, especially during the ever hectic holidays when I feel like we're pressed for time and I cannot BEAR to order pizza or grab drive thru food one more time!

This sounds like such a nice summer dish when you don't want to turn on the oven!

This is as easy as it gets! I love how you put them in a muffin instead of the traditional bun! This actually sounds really good for breakfast!

These sandwiches look absolutely delicious! I'll have to convince the hubby to make some for me!

Kelly Baum said...

I'm definitely going to try this! I like that I can easily make it gluten free by omitting the muffin, definitely a plus!

I'm fairly new to crockpot cooking, and these sound simple enough for me to attempt! Pinning so I can refer back to this later!

This looks absolutely delicious! I hardly ever use my crockpot for making dinner because I am out of the house the entire day. But this would be great to try on the weekend.

Yum! This looks awesome. I am looking for new crock pot recipes too. I ended up getting a second crock pot to use for our Christmas Eve party this year, so now I am on the search for lots of crock pot meals - that and they seem so much easier!
